Storyline

Alex Andero feels stuck washing dishes in his family's trattoria in New York City. He wants to write screenplays, and he has a great idea. Trouble is, he's not much with a typewriter; so, when his cousin calls and says a producer likes the idea and wants a script, Alex swallows his homophobia and asks for help from Elliot Springer, a talented writer who's an insecure, gay, Jewish nebbish. Elliot doesn't want the job, but Alex sets him up with Joey, a good-looking actor who works in the cafe. Elliot and Joey are soon getting it on, the script is slowly emerging, and Alex is discovering the beauty of Gwen, a woman in his writing class. Then, ego and greed threaten the partnership.

Quotes

Bob: Alex, your hero? Does he have a name?
Alex: He's... you know... an undercover cop... typical...
Bob: No, no. There is no such thing as a typical cop. In the original "Diehard," the cop is defined by an urgent need to reconcile with his wife. In, in "Dirty Harry," you have a bitter vigilante who has to find redemption in an Orwellian nightmare of thwarted individualism.
Alex (puzzled): Tony. His name is Tony.

Pleasantly Surprised!
12 March 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never commented on the IMDB before but felt compelled to do so when getting home from the theater. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed this film very much. The writing was clever, the directing excellent and the cast fantastic. I felt the editing may have needed a bit more attention...at a few moments. I don't know the actor Michael Parducci nor have I seen any of his work, but I think he did an amazing job. You really grow to like this "cool Italian guy". I hope to see more of Christopher Livingston's work in the future. Nice job!
